Sincere thanks to everyone who joined us last week for our annual MPAartfest Soirée Celebration!

We are so grateful for the generous support of our community at this annual artsy and fun-filled preview of our MPAartfest! We hope our guests enjoyed the party, and the chance to celebrate with other supporters. Endless gratitude to our hosts, Drs. Victoria and Lonnie Davis, our co-chairs JJ Singh and Lizzy Conroy, and all of our community partners and sponsors. And a very special thanks to Tony Powell for the fabulous photographs included above!

Connecting art and arts education with our community for more than a half-century is something we take pride in each and every day. McLean Project for the Arts remains dedicated to the idea that art is an essential part of the life of every community. With the help of your generous support, MPA will be able to continue to enrich the lives of so many in our community.

Thank you again to all who joined us. We look forward to seeing all of our MPA friends and family on Sunday, October 3 for MPAartfest in McLean Central Park, 10am – 4pm!


Soirée Celebration: Reconnecting Art & Community

This artsy and fun-filled evening gives guests a unique preview of MPAartfest, showcasing artists and their work.


Important Soirée Update: COVID-19 continues to present new hurdles, and MPA is thankful for your partnership and understanding as the situation, and thus, our policies and practices evolve accordingly. As a result of the ever-changing health landscape and in line with the practices of other arts venues in the region, MPA will be requiring each guest at Soirée Celebration on September 10 to present their vaccine card and ID at check-in. It is the responsibility of the Soirée ticket purchaser to comply with and to communicate these requirements to their guests. MPA Soirée 2021 will take place outdoors, but please bring a mask should you need to use an indoor space during the event.

For more information, please review our Soirée Frequently Asked Questions.
